If you didn’t guess by my movie marathon last weekend, I am an X-Men fan.
Not the comics, I’m not into comics, but definitely the movies.
And I’ve always loved TV shows with the same kind of theme like Heroes and Alphas.
Anyway, I know about the characters and there has been one character that fans have been dying to see on the big screen and he did actually make it into X-Men Origins.
For that movie Taylor kitsch was cast to play Remy LeBeau, AKA Gambit. He did a good job too although he was seriously under used!
X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has confirmed that Gambit has been cast again for another movie.
She stated “He’s a rogue, he’s a rascal, just like Remy Lebeau and he can handle the action, we all know that.”
She goes on to say how Tatum “has a good heart”. “I know him personally I did a movie with him. I think he’ll be great for Gambit.”
She did not however, confirm which film he’ll be in.
It could be 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the planned third ‘Wolverine’ movie or even a spin off of his own!!
I’m plumping for the next X-Men movie in 2016 with the hope that if his character does well he could land his own spin off movie!!
Gambit could have an amazing movie career of his own. He’s a fantastic character to play with.
